This website is a forum for disseminating aspects of my research into mystical theology, religion and spirituality in seventeenth-century England. Just as the Philadelphian's used their Theosophical Transactions to inform their readers of newly published books they would be interested in, as well as accounts of religious experience, this site aims to publish similar articles for the modern reader.
These articles will take many forms. I aim to publish articles on specific 'mystics' throughout history, review new books concerning mystical theology or similar subjects, and report from conferences I have attended.
